Symptoms mentioned by you are suggestive of sciatica. Other symptoms include: lower back pain. Pain in the rear or leg that is worse when sitting. Hip pain. Burning or tingling down the leg. Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot. A constant pain on one side of the rear. A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up. You can take medicines to reduce pain or if the sciatica is too severe then surgery might be needed.
